• Membership Benefits & Programs

  • Organizations join local Chambers of Commerce for a multitude of reasons and the members of the DeForest Area Chamber of Commerce are no different.  Some appreciate our business advocacy with the local municipalities; some are looking to learn and share best practices; some are looking for programs to develop future leaders; others are looking to move their business closer to top-of-mind status with other business leaders.  Whatever the reason, we understand their expectations and are committed to delivering excellent programming, advocacy and community engagement. Contact us today and see how we might help your organization grow!
